Review of World of Illusions

World of Illusions
Ranked #103 of 113 things to do in Gatlinburg
Attraction details
Reviewed 7 July 2014

News Years Eve 2013...my wife, son and I had some time to burn before the ball dropped in the center of town....after passing the World of Illusions for the 3rd time, we finally gave in to my 9 year old son's begging and decided to pony up the $23 to experience this train wreck....my visit to Gatlinburg took place 6 months ago and I am still compelled to write this review so here it is - biggest waste of time and money ever...please DO NOT enter...if your kids beg you to go in, punish them after and take the money paid to get in out of their allowance

This was not worth the price paid for the three of us. Very short and took less than 20 minutes to go through and that was with reading and looking at everything. It is a rip-off and no wonder not very busy. Have seen a lot of the items before from emails and other attractions in the area. Needs vast improvement or to close down so not to waste others money.

Not worth the money at all! Very cheaply done with no entertainment value! Would not recommend this attraction!

My husband choose this place .It was all of 10 minutes depending on how much time you put into looking at each cheesy illusion. The picture thingy you can put different hair on your head (computer ) kept freezing up . One person takes your money no others are needed to run this place . You end up out back away from the entrance i told my husband they send you out back because they know they just took some suckers money .lol . All these place If I were to do it all over again in Gatlingbur Note for future I would google reviews before deciding on any of these attractions

My 6 year old twins begged us to take them to World Of Illusion so we did. Was the worst money we spent, we literally were done in 15 minutes. It's very old and we didn't find it interesting.
